Alignment-Free Genome Comparison with Feature Frequency Profiles (FFP) and Optimal Resolutions

For comparison of whole-genome (genic + nongenic) sequences, multiple sequence alignment of a few selected genes is not appropriate. One approach is to use an alignment-free method in which feature (or/-mer) frequency profiles (FFP) of whole genomes are used for comparison--a variation of a text or...
